Full bio

Delip Andra, Founder & CEO of Twezr is passionate about building products that transform the way people live, work and communicate.

An entrepreneur for more than a decade, Delip has spent the last five years harnessing the potential of personalized search and social collaboration technologies. Delip’s most recent venture Minekey leveraged these ideas to build a popular discussion network that reached over two million members that connect with other like minded people on topics of their interest.

Previously Delip founded Euclid, a silicon valley based venture funded startup that pioneered cloud services (along with startups like Marc Andressen’s Loud Cloud) over a decade ago when the term “cloud” wasn’t even coined. Earlier in his career, Delip worked with Philips in Europe and India where he successfully commercialized several innovations developed at Philips Labs.

Delip earned a Bachelor of Technology degree with Honors from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India.
